The absolute most beautiful, breathtaking hike I have ever done in my life! Absolutely recommend hiking Angels Landing!! Don’t let your fear of heights stop you, just do it!

Short hike with a great view. Worth the effort.

Heavily trafficked; however the view at the end and near the end is awe-inspiring

Make sure your boots are tied.

Nice hike, and a pretty decent workout for how short it is. Some pretty views and some fun steep sections.
A bit crowded on a Saturday morning and the parking situation was a mess. $5 fee to park and too confusing to figure out if a National Park covers it based on the signs, so I just paid.

Awesome hike, definitely strenuous going up some of the steep areas. But it was worth it going up to Nevada Falls. Took the John Muir trail on the way down, much easier on the knees. Careful, There were some icy patches at the top of that trail. Took us 4 hours to hike, we covered about 8 miles.

Get there before 8 to have a relaxing hike up. If you get there late you may be sharing the trail with a lot kids, screaming tourists, dogs, and many other inconsiderate people that come with popular hikes. Fun little morning scramble though and the views are well worth it.

Super fun hike. We felt safe with the chain just make sure you make smart moves and you will enjoy it much more than worrying about falling off the cliff.
Make sure to take breaks because the whole thing is very strenuous.

Beautiful hike. Challenging, but a lot of fun. The view up top is worth the fierce incline on the way up.

Best hike I've ever done

Beautiful hike! Amazing views

Nice way to test your mind, have fun!

This hike is very challenging but well worth it to see the spectacular views! Not meant for shoes that have no grip.

The toughest I have ever done!! absolutely worth it! Me and friend went during off season when the cables came down. If that's the case please bring safety equipment (carabineers, harness, leather gloves) if you are planning to do the 400 ft. climb along the face of Half Dome. We did not have that equipment so I didn't do it, because safety always comes first! Have a safe hike guys and don't forget to bring lots of water and salted snacks :)

There is one part where it's bad, but it's the only place that it is that bad. Otherwise I was not scrambling.

Cool short hike. The only problem is since it’s so short, it’s very popular so you can’t really hike your speed because of the crowd.

Fantastic trail, but the last half mile is pretty strenuous and terrifying. The views are worth it if you can persist. By far the most challenging but rewarding hike I’ve ever done. It’s longer than advertised here, more like 5 miles. The first 2 miles are a series of switchbacks that get very steep in places and never seem to end. These stop at Scout’s Landing, where many people turn around after taking in the views. The last half mile is mostly climbing. Proper footwear and plenty of water are essential, and do not bring small children or pets. We are 50 and in decent shape but not used to higher elevations, and it took us 4+ hours round trip, which included plenty of stops and a slow pace thanks to my fear of heights. So glad I did this. But it really is every bit as scary as advertised, so don’t take it lightly.

This trail gets 5 stars because the views along the way and the view at the top is totally worth it - but it is definitely a difficult trail. I would consider it more rock-climbing as there are multiple places where I was crawling on my hands/knees. I took my 60 pound boxer and had to lift him up/down in a couple spots. Even if you're in shape, the elevation changes so quickly it gets hard to breathe - my suggestion is take a couple breaks along on the way up and enjoy the views!

Probably the best hike (this and the loop in the north part with several arches). This is a clasic and a must-hike./walk

Did this trail last year in November! Start early as it gets crowded on the chains section! Very strenuous but the most amazing views! Don’t attempt this if you’re scared of heights!

Snagged a wilderness permit and we did the 16 miles down... sleeping overnight at campsite 10. Was amazing!!

Boring. Easy.

Should be listed as moderate.

One for the bucket list.

At first glance,I thought this hike would be an arse kicker, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hike down was harder on me because I have knee issues, but being wrapped in KT tape saved me. Pretty much little to no major aches or pains. In fact, really none at all.

The drive to the trailhead takes about an hour if you’re zooming pretty fast. That said, I would NOT attempt that (driving fast) in the dark due to the elk. I hit the road at daybreak and did just fine.

The parking lot has outhouses (yay!!!) and a place to park your car for however long you need. Don’t leave stuff in sight, there is no security and break-ins do occur. Also, don’t park on the mountain side, as rock falls also occur. Park on the cliff side, even if that adds a bit to your overall hike.

The switchbacks are immediate and slowly, it becomes a relatively gradual downslope hike all the way into town. The hike is easily traversable (albeit hellacious gravel that seems to go on forever), easy to stay on trail, and offers many private spots to rest, snack, or do whatever you feel the urge to. Just make sure you carry all your trash out please.

You come to the “Supai” sign and you’re happy. Hold on a bit longer because “psych”..... you’ve got more to go.

The town of Supai is interesting. TAKE NO PHOTOS!!! New rules mean you will be cited and have to pay hefty fines. This goes for the tribal members and donkey trains as well. Once you’ve left a Supai and are in the waterfall/campground area, it’s fair game (with exception to the donkeys and the men tending to the area).

The bathrooms were lit, well kept and clean.

Campsites are unmarked and hard to come by if you arrive late. Most people pack up and head out early, so the best spots are available early. The good news is that if you get a sucky site, a new one will open up the next day. The even better news, there really aren’t but a few sucky sites.

In October the campground is pretty much in full shade all day. Havasu Falls gets shade around 2:00. If you’re relying on solar for charging, you’ll need to schlep back up to the top of the falls to have some sun for about another hour. It gets dark around 5:30 and if it’s windy, it gets cold.

I have a 15* Nemo bag that served me well. Jetboil is the way to go and I loved my MaryJanesFarm dehydrated food. Make sure you grab a HomeDepot bucket and a lid if you see one available by the start of the campground to store your food, they’re a Godsend.

I loved my time here. It was great to relax and unplug. I ate a lot less than I thought I would, and drank a lot more (hot tea/water/hot cocoa/ coffee).

No alcohol or drugs allowed. Please respect that.
Carry out all your trash and adhere to the principles of “leave no trace”..

No day hikes permitted.

The hike out? I was stunned at how easily I was able to just barrel through the last mile. Make no mistake, it was tough, but I lived to tell the tale! Lol

Have fun!!!
